obama and secretary clinton will be sitting down with steve kroft from "60 minutes." this is interesting, because it will be their first joint interview. it will air, of course, on sunday. of course, you can expect the two of them to get a range of questions, particularly about benghazi. and we also expect there to be some reflection about secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. of course, she's the most traveled secretary of state. so a lot to talk about during that interview. >> and, obviously, president obama, the first thing he did after being inaugurated was push forward the nominations for treasury and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's testimony a day earlier on benghazi. what the administration k
obama's side. we are now hearing that transportation secretary ray lahood is stepping down. he sent this letter to department of transportation employees saying in part, "i've told president obama, and i've told many of you, that this is the best job i've ever had." he goes on to say, "i'm grateful to have the opportunity to work with all of you, and i'm confident that dot will continue to achieve great things in the future." one out and another one in. well, almost anyway. last hour, the senate foreign relations committee voted to condition firm john kerry as the new -- voted to confirm john kerry as the new secretary of state. he will replace hillary clinton. and the full senate vote isn't expected until later today. that's considered more of a formality. >>> and this afternoon, cnn's exit interview with outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton is on our docket. make sure you action news to "the situation room" live at 5:00 eastern for wolf blitzer and the secretary. >>> now to a balancing act. a literal balancing act in florida from the famed wallenda family. nick wallenda is
white house. he has helped advise president obama on some of his key foreign policy decisions, including drawing down the troops in afghanistan, ending the war in iraq, and also responding to some of the natural disasters that have occurred in recent years, including haiti, and japan. he is someone who has built up a lot of trust here in the white house. you heard that today when president obama talked about him, talked about how much he meant to the staffers here. we should also mention he was pictured in the situation room during the raid on osama bin laden, so this is certainly someone who is very close to the president and will be a key figure moving forward with this white house. andrea. >> thank you so much, kristen welker. david gregory here and pete williams joining us as well. autowe've seen good chiefs of staff and bad. some of the best. jim bakker, ken duberstein, leon panetta in times of trouble. >> howard baker certainly rescuing the ronald reagan second term from don regan, a bad chief of staff by all accounts. what is the pluses and minuses of denis mcdonough. he knows the
the constitution and not be bogged down by a legacy of torture. i think president obama's upon of john brennan sends the message to all americans. >> you worked with him, directly for him. did he receive internal updates regularly about the torture techniques including waterboarding, as orders is reporting? >> i worked for him when he was an analytic manager. it was before he really hit the big time. but again, i think it is impossible for him not to have gotten these briefings, for him not to have been intimately involved in the policy by virtue of his senior position. some of the senior most positions in the cia, it is impossible he did not know what was going on. >> john kiriakou, you will be going to prison shortly. t know exactly when your prison sentence will begin? how are you preparing for this? you're the father of five children. >> i don't know exactly when this will be. it will be sometime in the next four to six weeks i will have to report to a prison somewhere. i don't know where. frankly, it is very hard to prepare. you have to do things like a range power of attorney, a range ch
, who is tipping down after serving throughout president obama's first administration. >>> this afternoon, during 5:00 eastern hour of "the situation room," before hillary clinton is stepping down as secretary of state, her exit interview takes place here on cnn. see it first today at 5:00 eastern. >>> mississippi river, they are still trying to clean up that oil spill. two barges filled with oil struck a bridge near vicksburg early sunday morning. the tank holding 80,000 gallons of oil and one of the barges started leaking after the collision. the gulf strike team is helping out with the cleanup but the job could get harder because the dangerous weather leaded through the mississippi valley. want to bring in chad meyers looking at this line of thunderstorms moving into the deep south. that's going to happen, what, this afternoon? >> yes, it is. right now these storms are moving at 75 miles per hour. so the significance here is you may not have time to get out of the way unless you already have a plan. and tornado watch means you should have a plan going on right now.
remains a mystery. for every suggestion of compromise, there is a doubling down on principle. that, i believe, is how we'll achieve republican renewal. >> as president obama told the new republic this weekend, until republicans feel that there's a real price to pay for them just saying no and being ob strkzist, you'll probably see at least a number of them arguing that we should keep on doing it and facing perhaps another four years of stonewalling opposition. the president may be taking at least one tip from his predecessor. >> fool me once, shame on -- shame on you. fool me -- you can't get fooled again. >> yet -- and, yet, today a ray of hope, possibly. a day before president obama heads to las vegas to outline a proposal for imgrigs reform, democratic and republican senators will announce an immigration fix they aim to sell to both sides of the aisle. the plan includes a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers along side a provision for stricter border security. jon mccain an architect of the proposal underscored the urgency in getting something done, especially fo
in session. the court found 3 to 0 that obama violated article two of the constitution. >> both republicans and democrats have done these type of recessed appointments. it goes down to what is a definition of a recess. if you go back to the constitution and that's what the judges did. they said 80 years after the constitution was ratified no president did a recess appointment like obama did. these guys that were appointed no good. >> in fact the chief judge was especially critical of president obama saying that he was giving himself, and i will quote here, free reign to appoint his desired nominees any time he pleases whether that time be a weekend or lunch or even when the senate is in session and he is merely displeased with its interaction. this cannot be the law. well, bob, if this were the law the president would then have unchecked unfettered discretion and ability to name anybody to any post at any time whenever he wants. wouldn't that render the constitution advise and consent clause meaningless? >> well that's what republicans are saying this is a victory for the separation of powe
some wondering if it is subtle endorsement of mrs. clinton to be mr. obama's successor. lawmakers were hoping that secretary clinton's testimony on the benghazi attacks would have provided hard evidence of how the tragedy happened. i sat down yesterday with senator john mccain and had a chance to question mrs. clinton. why didn't they push harder for more follow ups on important issues like what early warning measures were in place to address the security threat in the consulate? >> first of all, uma, you have a grand total of five minutes . i say this with some respect and little admireration. secretary clinton had been before the committees and long answers, they find more useful than short answers. i wanted to say that her answers were unsatisfactory and state many of the questions that were not answered and in hopes at leastt one of them i would get a satisfactory answer. i had to lay out our dissatisfaction with what she had said with not addressing the threats and the fact that a security group requesting to stay and felt they had to stay was with drown and on august 15t or 16th
has said, if we have to shut down the government to make sure president obama understands that, we're serious, that's almost treason, according to the 14th amendment. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: thank you. at this time i yield one minute to a distguished member from illinois, mr. davis. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. davis: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in support of h.r. 325, base opped a simple principle if congress doesn't pass a budget, congress doesn't get paid. we cannot start the process of controlling spending in this country without a budget. we also cannot ask hard working taxpayers to manage their own budget when elected leaders fail to do sthosme house has passed a budget each of the last two years. the other body must do theirs if we are going to control the out of control spending. for years the senate has gotten away without passing a budget but they have found time to pass laws that increase spending. s that terrible way to run a government and

. what a statement they have for america. it is probably not what you expected. president obama promised to close gitmo and the office working to close it is shut down instead. now why would that be? who went second. who believes that there are gun laws on the books that are the strongest statement we can do. you they, what would you do to sort of calm his fears, to insist that you will do everything you can in your power as one of the outspoken people on this issue to make sure gun laws are enforced that are on the books? >> well, one of the things that hit me right away when i heard this horrible news, is that here we go again, a law that says no guns in a particular area. gun-free zone was once again a factor in what happened in this tragedy. it's, i don't think it is a miss talk that all of the mass murders that we've experienced over last 20 years have occurred in gun-free zones. all but one of them legally enforced gun-free zones. that, ought to tell us something that, we're not making ourselves safe when nobody is around to protect anybody with a gun. this guy committed suicide an
